It’s downright hot and sexy to drive a Lamborghini along the mountain-lined sea-to-sky highway, a cinematically gorgeous, coastal stretch connecting Vancouver, B.C. and the resort town of Whistler. Men and women of all ages do double takes as I whiz by. It’s an experience right out of a James Bond movie.
This drive is part of Scenic Rush (5775 Marine Drive. Tel: 604-926-5777.www.scenicrush.com), which offers drivers and passengers (romantic, platonic, or otherwise) an opportunity to get behind the wheel of four fast-and-furious vehicles to Whistler (7-8 hours/ $1,295 per driver) or the midway point of Squamish (3.5 hours/$495), plus a ride up the year-old Sea-to-Sky Gondola (36800 Hwy 99, Squamish. Tel: 604-892- 2550. www.seatoskygondola.com) for eye-popping views of glaciers, greenery, and the Howe Sound, plus hiking trails, a Sky Pilot suspension bridge, and alfresco dining. By the time we return to our starting point I’ll also try my hand at a Ferrari F430 Spider, Audi R8, and a Porsche 911 Turbo.
